Resolving Disputes with Eldwick Law’s Shareholder Dispute Solicitors

We specialise in resolving shareholder conflicts through advice, negotiation, and litigation, protecting our clients’ rights and interests.


Our primary goal is to resolve shareholder disputes outside of court. This approach often leads to quicker, less costly resolutions, benefiting all parties involved.

If parties can reach a mediated solution, potential actions could include:

  • Continuing shareholders buying out
  • The company purchasing shares
  • Shareholders receiving the company through demergers
  • Acquisition of a new holding company, which may involve a share exchange for shareholders


If litigation becomes necessary, we are fully prepared to represent your interests in court.

Our lawyers are skilled in managing the different actions available to shareholders during disputes:

  • Unfair prejudice petitions, when other shareholders buy out the shareholder that has suffered the unfair prejudice;
  • Derivative action, where the director(s) are in breach of his/her duties;
  • Winding up of the company;
  • Breach of directors’ duties;
  • Underperforming directors or shareholders;
  • Section 944 petitions; and
  • Salary disputes.

Considerations on Shareholders Disputes

Understanding shareholder disputes requires a clear comprehension of the dynamics within a company.

Shareholder disputes arise from disagreements among shareholders or between shareholders and the company’s management.

Our specialised solicitors help parties resolve conflicts ensuring the outcome is in the best interest of the company and its shareholders.

Types of shareholder disputes vary, reflecting the complexity of corporate operations and the diverse interests of those involved.
